How would you prepare? (Chicken)
 
How would you prepare an elegant meal with the high light being chicken.

I have tons of chicken in the freezer - mostly pieces (breasts, thighs), skinless, boneless. Except the legs and wings of course, they still have bones and skin.

I want to invite my neighbours, the husband is about to leave for several weeks on a job. They are so very good to me and he has been super whenever I've been in trouble such as sump pump failure, hot water tank replacement, rerouting water pipes... so I would like to have something different with a bit of pizzazz!

Any suggestions? What are your ideas of a simple but elegant or indulgent chicken meal? Doesn't have to be extreme - don't kill or embarrass me! :lol:

Easy. Coq au vin. Simple peasant food way back when, that is now food that is very elegant

Also easy to make, but it needs to cook for a few hours, so it is easy, but not fast. That is also a good thing, because if your guests arrive late, or you get talking too much over cocktails, it can survive some overtime on the stove or in the oven.

I always like to stick with TNT recipes so I would go with oven fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, biscuits, peas or corn and cabbage salad.

for frozen chicken parts I like

1. Catiatore,

brown the chix parts in evvo, remove and set aside.

add vegitables of your choice.
the usuals are onion, bell peppers, garlic and mushrooms. but I like squash also.

Then Tomato sauce, just a small can of sauce or if more add a can of tomato paste.

water to cover , add the chix pieces back in and cook 30 minutes till done.

spices, simply Italian spices from a jar.

serve with spaghetti noodles and salad.

make it "saucy" as I have had drunk friends seen "licking the bowl" on this one.

2. Stewed Chicken

For more of a German/ Czhech Style..

just leave out the tomato sauce.

serve it over wide egg noodles,

spice would be simply Thyme and perhaps Juniper Berrys.

Kruaet goes well with this.

LOL Casey - too funny - that's what I made them last time they were over!

Good idea on the TNT Aunt Bea, I will have to sit down with my chicken recipe collection and pick my best. (according to my son, oven fried is just not one of them :rolleyes:)

It really doesn't matter which recipe you choose it will be new and different to your guests, just relax, have fun and enjoy your company.

Chicken and dumplings? People love them but don't normally take the effort to make them.
I just oven roast the chicken pieces and then make the dumplings in the gravy

Dragon, here's a recipe from Kades, one of our dearly departed great cook members.
I always trusted her ideas and recipes, and this would be easy and delicious for your dinner party....
